Join us in anticipating the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ this Advent season. Using Ralph Brueggemann's book Prophetic Imagination as our guide, we look at the inspirational work of the prophets Elijah and John who show us how to prepare for the promised Savior, and the prophet Jesus, who fulfills that promise.
Beginning at 7 p.m. on the three Wednesdays in December before Christmas, we come together for a short, mid-week Advent evening service of prayer and meditation.
Wednesday, December 5: The Prophet Elijah - Prepares for Advent
Scripture: Malachi 4:1-6; Matthew 17:1-13
Wednesday, December 12: The Prophet John - Prepares for Advent
Scripture: Luke 1:5-17
Wednesday, December 19: The Prophet Jesus – Fulfills Advent
Scripture: Luke 4:14-30
We also invite you to join in fellowship while enjoying coffee and dessert in the lounge before each Advent service beginning at 5:45 p.m.
We encourage households or groups of members to get involved in our celebration of Advent.
First, invite you to host one of the Advent Fellowship Hours on December 5, 12, or 19. Hosts bring sweets for roughly 20 guests, and arrive at 5:30 to make coffee, set up and clean up before the service at 7 p.m.
Or, light a candle on the Advent wreath during the Sunday Divine Worship services on December 2, 9, 16, or 23. The pastor will invite you forward at a designated time during the services to light the candle(s).
Please add your name to the sign-up sheets on the church bulletin board or call the church office at 312-642-7172.
